Frans Chocolates Hat

I recently bought some Frans Chocolates for a friend's birthday. Since then, I've been using the bag they came in as a tote for the hat I'm knitting for Eric. (Must ... knit .... faster ... hat ... must ... be ... done ... before ... Apple .... Cup!)


Last night, Conor decided the bag was no longer mine; it was his. (What's that thing about a toddler's belief system? "If it's mine, it's mine. If it's yours, it's mine....") Not only was the bag his,  but it was his hat. Fortunately, Eric quickly grabbed our camera (complete with fancy, schmancy new lens!) and captured Conor wearing his new couture.

This hat is truly quite a fashion statement and the epitome of practical. The long handles double as arm straps, keeping the hat securely in place during high-speed wind storms! Of course, the paper wouldn't hold up so well in our famous Seattle rain, but who am I to judge??

Cute boy!

Conor, where's your hat?

Making sure it is in the perfect spot on his head
